Women Who Never Age: Like Ever
Can we please have a sip of whatever it is these babes are drinking?
Somehow, somewhere, a select handful of women discovered the fountain of youth. You know what we're talking about ... that incredible group of women who only get more beautiful as the years go by.
Take for example, Cindy Crawford, who is currently celebrating 20 years of matrimonial bliss with her dashingly handsome hubby, Rande Gerber, in Nashville.
The 52-year-old supermodel and businesswoman -- who has appeared on countless magazine covers, runways and fashion campaigns -- recently took to social media to share a gorgeous black and white pic of herself and Rande, 56, on their wedding day.
“20 years ago today walking down the “aisle.” @RandeGerber, I couldn’t have chosen a better man to do this thing called life with. I love you!” the former model wrote.
Rande added, "20 years ago today, 2 amazing kids and this beautiful girl with her arms always holding on tight. Thank you for our life."
The couple tied the knot in 1998 and share two children: 18-year-old son Presley and 16-year-old Kaia -- er, hello Cindy doppelganger -- both of whom have since followed in their supermodel mum's footsteps. Love it!
They say that being in love helps to keep you looking young. Well, if these lovebirds are anything to go by, sign us up now. Immediately.
Another star who's clearly taken a sip from the fountain of youth is none other than Hitchcock babe and star of The Birds Tippi Hedren.
Tippi is the star of Gucci's new timepieces and jewellery campaign. She's 88 years old. And perfect. In the images, Tippi plays the role of a mysterious fortune teller who with the help of a crystal ball predicts the fortunes of fellow models Victoria Schons, Emily Unkles, Tom Atton Moore and Tex Santos-Shaw.
The Hollywood legend, best known her for her role in the Hitchcock classic The Birds, looks every bit as stunning as way back then. The same? Absolutely not. The woman is not Benjamin Button. But equally as beautiful? Yes. Oh yes.
With her hair swept back her perfect features are there for all to see. That fine, aquiline nose, impossibly high cheekbones and full, lovely mouth, all still very much on display. And what a display it is.
Shot by Colin Dodgson, the campaign is rich with texture and glorious colour. There's velvet and silk and sheer organza along with the heavy gold accents of the brand's stunning jewellery pieces including angular bangles complemented with delicate bracelets. And then there's rings. Stacked on virtually every one of Tippi's fine-boned fingers, they add a hint of rock chic to what is otherwise a classic, even demure collection.
We're genuinely excited by the range, but even more delighted by the fact that Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele chose an 88-year-old woman to host the campaign.
But wait, there's more
I think we can safely say there's a definite growing trend of diversity in the fashion and beauty industries. Scroll down to check out a few more babes that prove beauty is ageless.
Lou Kenny, 59
After leaving her modelling days behind her to open her own agency, this Melbourne-based beauty and qualified yoga instructor is now back in front of the camera – a casual 20 years later. And she’s never been busier – proving beauty and style gets better with age.
Sharon Stone, 60
Sharon is well regarded for her sexy and sultry good looks. And like a fine wine, she just keeps getting better. She shot to fame playing the femme fatal Catherine Tramell in the erotic thriller Basic Instinct - her interrogation scene is one of the most famous in modern movie history.
Maye Musk, 69
At 70 years of age, this Canadian-South African model and dietitian is proof that age is no barrier when it comes to style and beauty. In fact, the timeless beauty has graced the pages of many fashions mags, including being a cover model for fashion bible, Vogue.
Silvina Neder, 50
After a very successful career in market research, this Argentinean babe finally decided to pursue her dream of striking a pose for the camera. Now at the tender age of 50, she works as a model while inspiring others to follow their passions on her blog.
Colleen Heidemann, 69
Big hair, perfect makeup and impeccable taste are what make this gorgeous lady so fabulous. So fab, in fact, that style influencer Ari Seth Cohen, founder of Advanced Style, included her in his style blog. It’s no surprises though – given that the California girl previously worked as a flight attendant.
